Legendary Faces Take On New Roles At Storied Beauty Brands (And Glossies); Oreos Aren’t As Innocent As They Seem; And More-------
She famously declared that it’s the only thing she wore to bed, and now Marilyn Monroe has been posthumously named the newest face of Chanel No. 5. Upon discovering an unreleased recording of the icon’s testament to her favorite fragrance in the Monroe archives, the fashion house knew it had enough material to create a campaign—minus an in-the-flesh spokeswoman. The print and television ads are set to roll out in November.
Katy Perry illustrates that California girls are undeniable (along with easy, breezy, and beautiful) as she announced via Twitter that she’s CoverGirl’s newest star…or should we say, firework?
A different kind of cover girl is getting a corner office—Kate Moss was named as contributing fashion editor at British Vogue. We can’t wait to see her work wardrobe. [Vogue.co.uk]
Now you actually have an excuse for polishing off an entire row of Oreos—they’re as addictive as cocaine. According to researchers at Connecticut College in New London, rats were found to exhibit similar qualities around the cookie as they do when presented with nose candy. Another critical observation that came out of this study: Rodents also eat the cream filling first. [DailyMail.co.uk]
Makeup artist and beauty editor of Line magazine, Francesca Tolot, released never-before-seen photos of the legendary Kate Moss, Bridget Hall, and Amber Valletta from a 1994 shoot with Herb Ritts. “She was like sunshine,” Tolot said of Moss, the model that ruled the grunge era. [Line-Mag.com]
You can wear Balmain head to toe—literally. While the house already has a line of hair extensions and stylers, it is adding nail polish to its range of beauty offerings. The limited-edition set, including three classic shades (red, black, and beige) and a matte top coat, is available exclusively at Harvey Nichols starting October 20. And while you’ll have to eat the international shipping fee, you’re still guaranteed to spend far less on these colors than you would on couture.
According to allure.com, there are beauty benefits to living in space. Not only will you age .007 seconds slower among the stars than you will on earth, but shampooing becomes an entirely new and hair-raising experience.
If there is anyone that knows the power of undone hair, it’s an Olsen. Hence, the five-bobbies-only rule mane-master Mark Townsend is forced to abide by when styling Mary-Kate. But don’t think Ashley doesn’t have her quirks: The pro trims her ends while blow-drying so that she doesn’t see the scissors. [The Coveteur]
With so many models switching up their strands this season and the entire cast at Prada undergoing dye jobs in less than forty-eight hours to form “gangs” of “antiqued” brunettes, blondes, redheads, and raven-haired beauties, Spring 2014 made a strong case for the power of change…a shade change, that is.
“Color can give you a stronger identity,” said hairstylist Duffy. He went on to add that “Charlotte Free is the American Kate Moss” because of her decision to defy her agent and think pink. Seems like showing your true colors (or at least rocking the hue you believe you should have been born with) not only sets you apart, but also helps pave the way to the top.
Since it’s the Friday before a holiday weekend, I thought we should celebrate early with a bit of inked-up eye candy.
Dennis Klaffert (left)—who has walked for Calvin Klein and Giorgio Armani—has twenty-three tattoos that he’s had done in various countries around the world. In addition to a family crest of his own making and a compass (both of which his dad also has permanently stamped on his body), Klaffert has a heart on every finger except for one. “My wife has the missing heart; it’s her only tattoo,” he says. “We got them when we were in Germany. We were married, but we didn’t have rings then. She got the one heart that I don’t have.” As if marrying a model wasn’t enough, the girl also nabbed a man who knows the meaning of (badass) romance.
As for the dude with the abs, his ink also has a story all its own. Twenty-two year-old Eli Hall has appeared in such shows as Hermès, Fendi, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Issey Miyake (mostly with a shirt on), but his often-hidden chest piece that reads “Optimize” is a reflection of his middle name, Happy. “That’s what I base my life on—being optimistic and constantly staying [upbeat],” says Hall. But the tat you can’t see in this photo—”Everlasting Light,” written on his right index finger—was more of an impulse decision based on his favorite song by The Black Keys. “A friend was learning how to do tattoos two years ago, and I let him practice on me. He gave me the tattoo at home on my couch in Salt Lake City,” he explains.
And boys aren’t the only ones getting in on the action—ink is as ubiquitous on the women of the runways as stilettos. Legend Kate Moss has two birds above her bum; Cara Delevingne frequently hits up Rihanna’s go-to guy (Bang Bang in NYC) for her work, like the lion on her knuckle; and Jourdan Dunn has “Riley” written on her hand to remind her of her son. Models’ bodies are no longer just a blank canvas on which designers’ dreams can come to life—check out The Look to see why even up-and-coming catwalkers are putting their own stamp on things.
Moss Covers a Men’s Mag for First Time in Seventeen Years; J. Aniston’s Got a Thing for Kale Chips; Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Stone on Aging; and More-------
The September covers are starting to leak, and while we weren’t surprised to hear that Kate Moss will be fronting yet another glossy (she was most recently the star of Allure‘s August issue), we never would’ve bet on the British edition of Esquire. Yesterday, the publication released several images of Moss (wearing nothing but a blazer and a sheer bodysuit with some strategically placed bedazzling), with a statement pointing out that “Moss hasn’t been photographed for the cover of a men’s magazine in seventeen years,” and is “still one of the sexiest, stylish, and alluring women on the planet.”
Jennifer Aniston, who has been busy promoting her upcoming movie We’re the Millers (out in early August), spoke with Access Hollywood about preparing for the scenes during which she wears nothing but lingerie (Aniston plays a stripper, so she knew what she was signing up for). Like anyone in her position, the 44-year-old actress put herself on a strict diet for the role. “I was on a very, like, you know—greens and vegetables and lean proteins and kale,” she said. “When I really wanted to have a cheat day, I had to have a kale chip.”
In other celeb beauty news, Jezebel did an interesting comparison of Kristin Scott Thomas’s and Sharon Stone’s different feelings about aging. The actresses are 53 and 55, respectively. Scott Thomas found herself considering plastic surgery after Cannes: “I saw lots of my contemporaries there this year, all looking so beautiful and gorgeous and healthy, and I just felt like an old ragbag next to them. I just thought, Maybe it’s time to do something about it, like a facelift.” Meanwhile, Stone was a bit more forgiving: “I have come close [to surgery]—but, frankly, I think that in the art of aging well there’s this sexuality to having those imperfections. It’s sensual,” she said. “[But] I don’t think there is anything wrong with cosmetic surgery at all. I think it’s great. But I don’t think it’s all right to distort yourself.”
Keeping things lighthearted (or light-headed, if you will), the Huffington Post called upon its readers to compile a list of “50 Things You Should Never Say to A Woman About Her Hair.” Highlights include: “Is that a weave?”; “What happened?”; and “It’ll grow out.”
